Rockstar announced this week that it would be ending support for the Xbox 360 versions of the GTA Online, Max Payne 3, and L.A. Noire video games by the end of the year.
On September 16th, the sale of GTA Online’s in-game Shark Cards items will be discontinued and online support and website stat tracking for Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire will stop. Online services for GTA Online will continue until December 16th.
These changes only affect the online functionality of the three titles. All offline content, such as the main campaigns or story modes, will continue to work as usual and Xbox Achievements should continue to be unlockable. In GTA Online’s case, this means that the main game it’s a part of, GTAV, won’t be affected.
Those hoping to transfer their GTA Online progress from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Windows are unfortunately out of luck. “There is no feature available to transfer character data or progress from those platforms,” the official announcement reads.
L.A. Noire launched on Xbox 360 and Windows PC way back in 2011 and was eventually re-released on Xbox One with all of the original’s DLC and a 4K visual upgrade. Max Payne 3 came out on Xbox 360 in 2012. It was the third and final entry in the Max Payne video game series.
GTA Online launched on Xbox 360 in 2013 as part of GTAV. It was soon re-released on Xbox One the following year and got an additional release for Windows PC in 2015. Yet another re-release of GTA Online is expected this November for Microsoft’s new Xbox Series X console.
